Scope: The mechanical properties of irradiated materials change significantly upon exposure to neutrons in the reactor. The ability of a material to resist mechanical property changes from irradiation-induced point defects is one of the critical aspects of improved radiation tolerance. Thus, identifying or designing materials with a tailored response that can sustain high levels of radiation damage while maintaining their mechanical properties is a grand challenge in materials research. The objective of this special topic is to provide a platform for researchers to share their research related to the evaluation of mechanical behavior of structural materials for nuclear applications.
